? Please HELP ?

Ok so a while back i was gonna purchase some Eibach springs but money ran out when i bought my sound system and now i only have about $130 to spare and no more money is coming in for a long time. Anyways i was looking on the internet and i found some springs that are called Maxspeed?? I also found some OBX Coilovers?? Any of those good??? Also would a 1.4 inch drop look good for my car with 17s??? confused

post links so we can see.

I think 1.4" drop will be fine since stock is about 2.5" to 3" between the tire and fender. So your just about cutting that in half.

yeah, those are reliable, and 1.4 - 1.5" of drop with 17's shouldn't be a problem
